Hey, everyone!~ "Uni reporting; I have a requisition for all of you." So I heard that there are a lot of talented people out there on this particular forum. I've come here today to offer each and every person a chance to design a gun for me. Lastation is in desperate need of weapon designers, and I am willing to exchange your designs for any game of your choice (As long as it falls within range of course (^_−)☆)! The rules for this contest are as follows: Name your weapon and describe as much as possible the design concept of said weapon (i.e. What the weapon looks like, what it was designed to do, how it works, background story). Assign your weapon a proper type. For example: Assault Rifle, Grenade Launcher, Railgun, Dual Wield Rocket Launchers (wait wat?), etc. For this reason, all weapons must be considered a firearm/small arms - a weapon that fires or launches a reasonable projectile (No melee weapons, magic staffs, rocket-propelled chainsaws, etc. You can however have Energy/Magic based firearms as long as you describe how it works within the weapon). A weapon can also be a combination of up to two weapons (i.e. Sniper Rifle/Shotgun). (Optional) - Include an image of your design! If you decide not to include one, it will in no way affect your standing within the contest - it just helps me to visualize your gun ヽ(・∀・)ﾉ (Important) - Contest lasts for 14 days beginning from the first poster, and ends with the top designer's weapon design posted under this list - which is decided by me. Afterwards, I will contact the winner directly through PM to discuss the distribution of the reward via Steam. However, if 8+ people join, time will be cut to 7 days (；￣Д￣) Now get out there and make it a clean fight. Good luck, and have fun! Kakushi Industries Type 47 M.A.W.S. (Modular assault weapon system) The Type 47 was developed to supply frontline troops with an adaptable lightweight assault rifle with quickly exchangable parts for ease of maintenance and to adapt to any threat infantry might encounter on the battlefield while at the same time putting no undue stress on supply lines. Sights, barrels, handguards etc. can be switched in a matter of second without any special tools and allow for a wide variety of jobs this weapon can do. The receiver, handguard and other parts are made from lightweight polymers whereas the chamber, barrel and firing mechanism are constructed from stainless steel to assure functionality. This gas-delayed blowback operated firearm will operate without major malfunctions even under adverse environmental conditions such as extreme heat or cold, moisture, sand et cetera, and the reliable action ensures that jams are a very rare occurence. Another unique design feature is the stock which can be both folded and expanded, allowing operators to quickly reduce the length of the weapon in urban warfare and getting it back to normal in longer-range engagements. The reliable 6.6mm cartridge is impervious to moisture and is guaranteed to lethally expand on target, although this feature has raised some concern from human rights activists. One flaw some have pointed out is that the weapon is very light which reduces accuracy in fully-automatic fire because the gun can bounce up, necessitating additional foregrips or heavier barrels. By standard, this weapon is equipped with a diopter sight. Initially the troops were sceptical, but field testing and actual combat experience have shown it to be a reliable workhorse for infantry of all branches. The extreme adaptability also takes stress from supply lines, because this weapon can within minutes or even seconds be transformed into a light machine gun, sniper rifle for medium ranges or even a gun turret with appropriate mounts. Optional accessories include additional sights, foregrips and bipods, heavier barrels for sustained fire, underslung additional weapon systems such as grenade launcher or shotguns, laser rangefinders, flash hiders, suppressors and conversion kits for different calibers. The default color supplied by the producer Kakushi Industries is black, but due to the ease of cleaning this weapon it can simply be spray-painted should the need arise. While it is not being exported to other countries and not available to the civilian market, the government claims as a unit price of 2570$ for the standard weapon and up to 6500$ for complete sets. Name: Gambler's Requiem Use: Unknown How it works: Noted in story (( Note, I only got the idea, then found a fitting picture. )) " Eh? So you wanna know about....that gun? Eh...If I've warned ya once, I've warned ya a hundred times. I wouldn't use it if i was you Uni....But, If ya need it that bad...It's a small, yet very...strange...the best way it can be described is as esotero-tech....It works on something that seems like magic, but fused with technology...It runs off a set of crystals suspended in a strange superfluid, and when the fluid is agitated by an electrical charge, the crystals resonate like quartz, but discharge down a lens, firing a superheated blast of anomalous light. It acts like it's kinetic and pure energy at the same time. It will knock ya off ya ass, while burnin a hole in ya.... The first guy that owned it was a gambler, surprise surprise, named Leon Bright. He didn't tell me where he got it, only that he won it in a bet against some....three eyed robot man....He was at first gonna sell it, but, it saved him. He was going to sell, and on the way he got jumped. He didn't kill the guys, but he injured them enough so they were rendered useless. So he thought it had good luck attached to it...well, he was wrong. Everything was on the up and up for him, his life goin great, got a girlfriend, house, good job....But, then came the curse. It seems the original owner of the gun was happy to get it gone, because someone was lookin' for him....One day, on the way home from work, he called his girlfriend. No answer. He just shrugged it off, but he knew something was off when he saw a group of shady guys at his house. He got out, holding a hand on his gun as he approached them.. One of them, a tall guy in a cloak, with a strange, maw like mouth addressed him. They said they wanted to know where the man was that gave him that gun. Leon told them he didn't know, and he won it in a bet. Then, they pulled out his girlfriend from behind him..The maw-mouthed man smiled cruelly...It was all over in an instant...one of them shot his girl, and he shot them all dead......After that, he tried to live with it, but everything went downhill...He even wound up killin himself with it...The only way I got it, is that he was my brother.....* Sigh* If you want it Uni, take care you have no-one you love...." Starbound is really low on unique sniper rifles, and the ones we do have are all the same. Shoot, wait, shoot, wait, maybe you have a flashlight or a grenade somehow too. I like the tesla's wrath, but it's ridiculously rare (or I'm ridiculously unlucky!). I propose a sniper rifle with a laser aim. Nothing too special... but there's a twist! it can bounce of a wall or enemy three times. The laser reflects this like so: The laser is blue. when it hits a wall or enemy it bounces off and becomes green. When it hits another wall or enemy, it becomes red. When it hits another wall or enemy after that, it disappears, because that's where the bullet stops too. The rifle does above normal damage for its tier before a ricochet, about normal damage after one ricochet, and about 70% normal after two. Unofficial Stats: Boatworthy's Deflection rifle X damage( you can set this depending on the tier you want it to be. I recommend 4th tier or higher due to the unique mechanic. ) 1.2 use time Special: Laser scope. Enables the laser scope, allowing pinpoint accuracy every time, even after two bounces. It disables energy regen, though, similarly to the marked shot special. 20/35 energy cost (is this right? I've never really looked into appropriate energy usage for weapons of any given tier. Image Sorry it's so big lol If you're curious about the name, It's one of a couple usernames I use semifrequently. Feel free to change whatever you like! ...As for technical stuff, This gun fires durasteel rounds. They have a very unique shape. They look like a normal bullet, with two major modifications: firstly, they have a rounded tip. this allows for their characteristic ricocheting ability, but also makes them ever-so slightly less potent than other sniper rifle rounds. Fortunately, this is more than counterbalanced by the force needed to propel such a projectile in such a manner. Secondly, they have six fins, which force he barrel to be oddly shaped, but provide pinpoint accuracy, even after two ricochets. As for the laser aim, it uses a mechanism in the scope to generate millions of tiny semimagnetic ferrous particulates. It then projects those particulates out of the scope, and electrocutes them, causing them to glow blue. After each wall they bounce off, they lose a little magnetic energy, and some of them disperse, leading to a decreased wavelength, green. After hitting a second object, they disperse further, and lose more energy, leading to a red color. After this, the wavelength enters the infrared spectrum, and is only visible to certain creatures, none of which are playable races in starbound. History: Boatworthy's Deflection rifle was invented by Boatworthy, a Novakid inventor who had no particular motivations for inventing it, but thought it would be really cool. Unfortunately, there might have been only one ever made, had he not been an enterprising young fellow who had great fun with this toy (weapon, but it was fun enough it was pretty much a toy.) and proceeded to tell anyone he met about it. Within a few years, the miniknog heard of it, and basically claimed the Idea was their own. It was almost standard issue for the miniknog for a long time, until a major defeat at one of their factories forced it so stop being mass produced. Now, it's pretty much a weapon that's been passed down from people's grandfathers, and no one really knows who made it, other than by its unofficial name. It's a heck of a lot of fun, though. By the way, I'd like to thank the devs of starbound for making starbound's weapons so diverse. You're never afraid to make a novelty weapon awesome, which not too many games do.
